Tax return excuses

There is still time to get your return done but you need to act now. But for fun here are some excuses HMRC have been given for failing to get your return in on time.

  1. My pet dog ate my tax return…and all the reminders.
  2. I was up a mountain in Wales, and couldn’t find a postbox or get an internet signal.
  3. I fell in with the wrong crowd.
  4. I’ve been travelling the world, trying to escape from a foreign intelligence agency.
  5. Barack Obama is in charge of my finances.
